Nic and I went to Canada for the weekend. We needed to get out of town for a bit. We left the dogs at home and my brother came up and took the dogs camping. It was our first trip without dogs in a while.
We stopped off at the Soo Locks on our way up so that Nic could check them out. He had never been there. Then we made our way North. The weather was rainy and foggy, driving up through the mountains. We stayed at Crescent Lake campground for the first night. We were the only ones there. The bugs were AWFUL! We even drove back along the highway 40 miles to find somewhere to buy bug spray.
The next day, we woke up and got ready to backpack. We started along the lake and planned to go a few miles. The trail was rated “difficult” and boy, they were not kidding! We were dying. Our packs were heavy. The trail was extremely hard and really wet. My feet were slipping around everywhere. And the bugs were once again terrible. So we stopped at the first campsite and called it good. It was a beautiful spot.
